title: chocolate [a girl with no shadow fanmix]
notes: for Christmas last year, Cyrus and Lena sent me a box full of books - one of those books was The Girl With No Shadow, which is fantastic and you all should read it. this is a fanmix for that book. these songs are from Zozie's, Anouk's or Vianne's perspective, but guess which ones are which.
listen: here

i. sad robot - stars
j'ai peur que je vais rouiller ce soir
mon coeur
changera de l'acier á la poussiére

ii. cherbourg - beirut
well it's been a long time
since I've seen you smile

iii. hot on your trail - sinéad lohan
you've got to lie low, follow your moon
that's all I ever did

iv. precious illusions - alanis morisette
these precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was defenseless

v. neutral ground - sea wolf
this morning we drove out of town into the hills and looking down
saw the ocean all around as far as we could see

vi. between the bars - mdeline peyroux
people you've been before
that you don't want around any more

vii. the intention craft - pure reason revolution
the ashes catching alight, behind the faces and lies
the sharpened knives are disguised

viii. so cruel - u2
you disappeared in me
I gave you everything you ever wanted
it wasn't what you wanted

ix. oh my darling - basia bulat
oh I will never give them up to any ceiling
promise or a lie, they are mine until I die

x. cross your fingers - laura marling
and on my word you'll give up your whole life for me
and you'll be reborn, bigger and stronger and less alive

xi. obsessions - marina and the diamonds
you never told me what it was that makes you strong
what it was that makes you weak

xii. my medea - vienna teng
I'll tap into your strength and drain it dry.

xiii. howl - florence + the machine
my blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out
the saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallowed ground

xiv. set the fire to the third bar - snow patrol
and I pray that someone picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms

xv. la panique mécanique - dionysos
j'ai peur de quoi?
j'ai peur de toi, enfin de moi sans toi, regarde

xvi. don't u eva - sarah blasko
you've got a way with words
you've got a way that makes me feel so complicated

xvii. last year's war - sarah slean
seems to me quite clear, now
now that you are here how
easily I could begin again

xviii. quickdive - charlotte martin
you try and show me shallow pools
but I've seen oceasn

xix. scared as fuck - an horse
I got so scared that
you might be a better me than me

xx. ways & means - snow patrol
if I lied you'd know it instantly
so I just had to look away

xxi. here i dreamt i was an architect - the decemberists
I am nothing of a builder, but here I dreamed I was an architecht
and I built this balustrade to keep you warm, to keep you safe
from the outside world

xxii. the spine song - cake bake betty
on your birthday, you woke up, the snow was on the ground
you opened books and peeked inside
they kissed you on your crown

xxiii. what if the storm ends? - snow patrol
but now it's found us, like I have found you
I don't wanna run, just overwhelm me

xxiv. earth - imogen heap
you're not golden, and I'm getting tired
act like you own the place but really you've only just arrived

xxv. face to face on high places - school of seven bells
when you came I woke from many sleeps

xxvi. transatlantique - beirut
midnight surrounds you
the moonlight makes you proud

xxvii. the atheist christmas carol - vienna teng
the season of bowing our heads in the wind
and knowing we are not alone in fear, not alone in the dark

xxviii. whatever it takes… - sinéad lohan
take this morning in my kitchen
or whatever that helps you to believe

xxix. chocolate - snow patrol
this could be the very minute I'm aware I'm alive
all these places feel like home
with a name I've never chosen

I have not heard of any of these songs except for one and nor have I heard of the book, so I'm quite excited to delve into both!

Thank you so much for sharing :D

This looks amazing; I haven't listened to Sarah Blasko in way too long. I also love the cover and how you use that bold red - very effective. Definitely snagging. Thank you!
